Reviews

Charles W. Forman--Yale Divinity School In this book Timothy Yates throws fresh light on an important, but little known, part of Christian mission history. His work is to be warmly welcomed. Allan Davidson--University of Auckland Conversion of the M?ori and the impact of missionary Christianity in New Zealand have been matters of considerable debate among historians. Timothy Yates provides a careful analysis of these areas and offers carefully nuanced insights into these complex issues, taking particular note of indigenous initiatives." Charles W.

"Anglican and Episcopal History" Timothy Yates' "Conversion of the Maori" joins the recent move toward synthesis -- toward a more complicated, and accurate, understanding of missionary motivation and effort. A docent of mission studies at the University of Uppsala (Sweden), Yates shows us that some missionaries were courageous idealists, and some were misfits looking for a place of power in the world. Some missionaries disliked the people among whom they worked, and some came to admire them. Some missionaries held themselves to the high standards they preached to others, and others, far from home, lived double lives. . . . "The Conversion of the Maori" is written in straight-forward prose that relies more on reportage than on thoughtful analysis.
